    Lightbulb HTTPS please

    It would be very nice if this site would be reachable
    also through HTTPS, not only just HTTP.

    People who need to use a series anonymous proxies or
    public WiFi to access the internet, may sometimes
    fall to the victim of automatic forum account stealing
    spam bots running on the proxy exit nodes, which
    have a very easy job if the connection is plain HTTP,
    so it is better if the connection is encrypted, as it
    will reduce forum spam, and it will be less probable that
    poor unlucky users will end up with automatically stolen
    and then of course automatically banned accounts.

    By the way, if you have trouble getting a HTTPS certificate,
    you can get one at zero cost, from the
    Electronic Frontier Foundation's Let's Encrypt project.
    VNDB also uses that certificate.

    Just a suggestion

    Re: HTTPS please

    We don't have trouble getting a certificate. We have trouble getting our ad provider to work with HTTPS - because at the end of day, server costs need to be paid (and no, there's no free servers for a forum our size available).

    Re: HTTPS please

    I see, that is a very valid reason.
    I understand it.
    Surviving in the real world and
    earning money is indeed very hard.

    I guess that ad providers pay by looking at
    how many IP addresses have seen or
    clicked on an advertisement, so even
    setting up a transparent HTTPS proxy
    to your subdomain for example something
    like http://www.secure.reux.cc,
    would not solve the problem, because then
    everything will look like as if it has came
    from the same IP address.
